      so you didn't see Henderson play last night then. and by the way Fab was my man of the match last night.

      I did mate and I commented on how well I thought Hendo did.

      My personal preference is a midfield three of Fabinho, Gini & Keita, no disrespect to Hendo but I think that three are all playing in their best position in midfield and we have the most to gain from it.

      With Hendo in there, someone out of the the other 3 will be playing out of position and I just don't think it works unless Fabinho is holding with Gini & Keita on either side.

      When Ox is back I think he can give Keita a good run for his money in the more forward role.

      The pick of the midfield today, he really is the first name on the sheet for midfield.

      I thought he did well today.

      Little too quick to bang it out early and surrender the space but otherwise I thought he did reasonably well.

      Good stats, but not really a reflection of his talent yet.
      More to come from this lad.

      I find the fact he struggled at first but then improved every time he played is a measure of the man. He must have worked so hard in training to get up to speed and to be fair he has been on it for a couple of months now. If we can get Kieta upto speed soon what a run in we are going to have.

      Game probably changed for us when he came on, his positional awareness is unbelievable.

      A bit sloppy with the ball in the first half but made sure they didn’t get a sniff.

      Eh?
      Completely standard defensive play.
      Usher the guy away from goal, try and get a nick on the ball to take it away from him.
      I'd expect any DM or defender to do exactly the same.

      He had a rough first half, constantly giving the ball away and not getting much right, and far too interested in gobbing off to the ref after getting a little shove than getting back into position.

      A better 2nd half, with Wijnaldum and Milner dropping in with him at various time, he seemed to keep it basic, just knocking the ball around, which is exactly what we needed from that position last night.

      A learning experience for him, and nice to see him keep it calm and simple 2nd half.

      Thought he had a really rough night.

      Our weakest link by far - albeit in a terrific, grafting and ultimately pretty clinical performance from a great side.

      BUT

      He never stopped trying, produced one or two moments in the second half and will be the better for it.

      He seems to have one in 4/5 games where the passing radar is way off - I wonder if it’s a fatigue thing as he adapts to a massivelymore demanding league physically.

      I like the fact that he didn't let it get to him, but I think last night we saw in 30 mins of football, all the things he needs to work on.

      Second half, he was competent, played with more composure, kept things simple, and was pretty much an extra CB a lot of the time.
      That little pocket of space, with Wijnaldum or Milner dropping in front of him worked wonders for him.

      He won't have many worse games than last night, he's too good for that, and utlimately, if he learns from it, that can only be good for him, and for the team.

      His passing was off last night esp. when he first came on, and looked tired as klopp had said.

      But he made some brilliat tackles and dug in.

      Hes been brilliant over a long period now, so the odd rough 15-20 mins is allowed.

      Thought he took some time to to settle into the game when he came on, but understandable in a game of that magnitude , however, he was okay with a couple of iffy moments. Second half he was superb overall making some key tackles and blocks throughout!

      Not his best game, but still an important cog and he was still very good on the night!!

      We all see it differently PM.

      I think he’s a wonderful player - one whom I’d play more than not BUT I thought he was poor last night.

      However - it’s a Red’s classic European result so in the longer term that matters not a jot.

      72% pass completion.

      2 tackles, 1 interception, 1 clearance.

      Won 2 headers.

      2 fouls, yellow card.

      Poor.
      Anyone who thinks that was anything other than a poor game for the lad is living in cloud cuckoo land, although he improved somewhat in the 2nd half.

      However, it's not really a big deal either.
      It's football, and these guys aren't robots.
      The bottom line is that we won.

      But he made some brilliat tackles and dug in.

      Pretty much the same as most on the night. Nobody had a good game in terms of possession, for both sides that is too. Just look at Virgil, for all the praise he’s getting (and rightly so) people forget that his passing was just as bad for large parts. One point in the first half he tried to play a long diagonal out to Salah but it was about 15yards ahead of Salah and went out for a throw, was a terrible attempt of a pass.

      Think even Fabinho would admit it wasn’t his best game but for all he got wrong, I think he redeemed himself with that tackle in our box.

      Both teams were incredibly sloppy, giving away cheap fouls etc but the fact we still cane out 3-1 winners, away to one of Europe’s best teams whilst playing so sloppy I think is a testament to just how far we have come.

      The way Fabinho has come in for a fair amount of stick is harsh, it’s not like Robbo who cost us a goal, it’s not like he mistimed his tackles and gave away a penalty. It wasn’t a vintage performance from him and it wasn’t a sh*t performance from him, it was a performance that fitted the mould of the game - sloppy and average.

      Expect to see much better from him and he’s proven he can deliver so I’m not worried.

      I was surprised to see Hendo in the starting lineup ahead of Fab but it all worked out in the end.

      Thought Fab would have started and then Hendo come on later if we wanted to hold onto whatever we had. Boss knows best though.

      Klopp likes the 3 of Henderson, Milner and Wijnaldum for the big games, it seems.
      That might change as Fabinho get's properly settled though.

      We have a great array of talent in midfield now so we have 12/13 games left this season time for those players to earn a spot in the CL games. I think Fab and hopefully Keita will just prove why we wanted them and I wouldn't mind seeing either or both playing .
      Its going to be some run in.
